Justin Timberlake was snubbed in the general field categories, but he had a successful Grammy night anyway, winning three of his seven nominations: Rap/Sung Collaboration (“Holy Grail” with Jay-Z) during the televast, as well as Music Video (“Suit and Tie,” also with Jay-Z) and R&B Song (“Pusher Love Girl“) during the pre-telecast.
Jay-Z’s two wins with Timberlake bring his career Grammy haul to 19, which ties him as the 15th most honored artist in Grammy history. He had a leading nine nominations in 2013.
Kacey Musgraves lost her Best New Artist bid, but she won a pair of prizes in the country field: Best Country Song (“Merry Go Round“) and Best Country Album (“Same Trailer Different Park“), beating Taylor Swift‘s Album of the Year-nominated “Red.” Swift, who had four nominations, was shut out.
